Your Bank Holiday home improvement checklist

The Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend means two things – barbecues and DIY! It’s all about finding the time to relax and enjoy some time with your friends and family, but also squeezing in a few chores too. Sticking to such a busy schedule can take some planning, so here’s our suggested checklist on the home improvement front.

Paint the spare room

It’s time to give a lick of paint to the forgotten room – the one that has scribbles and handprints on the walls, the one that hasn’t been touched since you moved in years ago. Painting is always easiest when the furniture is out of the way and all the little bits are tidied up, so this is the first job on your to do list.

If you have a room in your home to keep your bits together then that would be perfect, a garage will also work, but if you’re short on space you could consider local self-storage solutions. We can rent units short term and flexibly, so even if it’s just for the weekend, self-storage could be your best option.

Our protective covers are also ideal as a means to cover up your carpet and protect your furniture while you paint. Plus, we are currently offering 25% when you buy three or more items from our cover range, so it’s the perfect time to stock up.

Declutter the house

While you are considering finding local self-storage units, you could also take the opportunity to declutter your home.  Sometimes moving furniture around (or out of the house completely) can make you see your home in a whole new light. Our storage units are available from £6 a week, so we think that using storage to keep anything you don’t want in your house, but can’t quite bring yourself to get rid of, is pretty clever.

Tidy the garage

A perfect Bank Holiday job. Sweep the floor, dust the shelves and wind up the various electrical cables that are probably snaking around the floor. Tidying the garage is super satisfying because it makes you feel so organised. If you have the time and energy you could install some hooks to hang your gardening tools off or put up some new shelves to hold your newly cleaned and organised items. Our storage boxes are robust, and perfect for housing all those garage essentials that you want out of the way.

Do the gardening

Not so much of a chore really, gardening can be relaxing so take the time to enjoy it. Buy some seeds or seedlings in advance and make sure you have some compost (peat free ideally), so you are all ready to start. Try to use some recycled pots or trays (empty yoghurt pots are good) and wait patiently for the fruits of your labours to start sprouting.

Have a BBQ

When the tidying is all done, and the garden is looking the best it’s looked in months you have to make time to sit back and enjoy it. Bank holidays and barbecues are perfect partners, so pile up the coals and grab some fire lighters.

Testimonials

I stored my belongings in this space for one year, and it was absolutely pleasant experience. The staff is extremely professional and helpful, and they take time to understand the requirements of the client.
Even after not visiting my locker for one year, the storage is in excellent condition even after getting it back. I would recommend this to anyone. Really good experience!

5 Stars

Everything was just easy and straight forward. I've used other self storage places in the past but this was just so much better. The manager Sarah was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them again next year!!!

Jodie was fantastic and getting the storage booked was really easy. The unit was perfect for what I needed to store over the summer.
